Aprés Nail Launches New Gel Collection – Technique
Aprés Nail, creator of the widely-loved Gel-X Extensions system, recently launched Aprés Gel Couleur, a vast collection of 100 highly-pigmented gel polishes.
The new gel collection is made of a pure, undiluted formula with medium viscosity that allows for both smooth one-color application and bright nail art. The high pigmentation from each Aprés Gel Couleur shade dispenses opaque color in fewer coats with no tacky layer after curing.
The Aprés Gel Couleur brush, Brush-X, is both a convenient tool for pros and a helpful aid for at-home users. Made of PBT fibers, the Brush-X is a denser, more compact brush that creates a smoother and more precise color application. Users will also get more coats per bottle as the brush allows you to use less gel to get full opacity.
“Our Aprés Gel Couleur collection was designed to be an inclusive, all-encompassing gel polish line,” says Eunice Park, Aprés Nail’s Research and Development Manager. “The pigments from the collection are both smooth enough for one color and opaque enough for nail art, giving you the freedom and flexibility to create art without limits. In addition to the shades, our new Brush-X is both a convenient tool for pros and a helpful aid for DIYers.”
Aprés Gel Couleur Application Tips:
- For Gel-X: Users will not need to use a base coat before color application. Prepare Gel-X Tips prior to color application with either Gel-X Prep or acetone, then apply thin layers of color for even curing. Only a little is needed; if too much gel is used, it will bubble and wrinkle.
- For Natural Nails: Apply a base coat for the best color adhesion. Following base coat application, apply thin layers of color for even curing. Even on natural nails, only a little is needed; if too much gel is used, it will bubble and wrinkle.
The brand offers this exciting collection in single shades, in curated bundles of 25 or 50, or the complete set of 100. Aprés Nail also offers a variety of powerful LED lamps to make sure you’re getting the best cure possible.
